  • U.S. economy bounces back in second quarter

Economists had forecast the economy growing at a 3.0 percent rate in the second quarter after a previously reported 2.9 percent contraction. A separate report showing private employers added 218,000 jobs to their payrolls last month, a decline from June's hefty gain of 281,000, did little to change perceptions the economy was strengthening. The economy grew 0.9 percent in the first half of this year and growth for 2014 as a whole could average above 2 percent.


  • Wall Street up on GDP data; Twitter has biggest jump ever

    The Twitter symbol is displayed at the post where the stock is traded on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeGross domestic product grew at a 4 percent annual rate in the second quarter, above the 3 percent rate that had been expected and a sharp reversal from the weather-impacted first quarter, when the economy contracted a revised 2.1 percent. Twitter Inc surged on heavy volume, jumping 25 percent to $48.25 in its biggest one-day advance ever after reporting that monthly active users had risen a better-than-expected 24 percent in the second quarter. In this rate environment, the market isn't expensive and we're still finding good values," said Gary Bradshaw, portfolio manager at Hodges Capital Management in Dallas. Market participants shrugged off the ADP National Employment Report, which showed companies hired 218,000 workers in July, a level that was below analysts' projections and was also down from June.


  • Carlyle's second-quarter earnings double

    A general view of the lobby outside of the Carlyle Group offices in Washington(Reuters) - Carlyle Group LP said Wednesday its second-quarter earnings doubled from a year earlier as it continued to sell parts of its private equity portfolio and one of its European buyout funds started paying performance fees. Yet private equity dominated its income, accounting for 32 percent of assets under management but 65 percent of its earnings in the quarter. Carlyle's private equity fund portfolio appreciated by 5 percent in the quarter, in line with rival KKR & Co LP's funds, but less than the private equity portfolio of Blackstone Group LP , which rose by 8.4 percent.
